Göatzilla: Aussie High-Voltage Rockers Present New Single/Video Nightmare

Today, high-voltage Aussie rocker’s Göatzilla release the new single and video Nightmare. Front goat Ben Zilla explains Nightmare: It’s a prequel – the backstory to ACDC’s ‘Jailbreak’, about a guy jailed for a crime he didn’t commit. Jailbreak got me into rock when I was about 11 or 12 – I loved everything about it – the riff, the rhythm, the solo, the vocals, the energy – but especially the way it told a story. So when P1 (Guitarist Pete Beardsley) came up with the initial tune, it just sounded so 70’s Aussie pub rock.” The band actually gave it the working title Malcolm in honour of the famous Young brother.

Ben continues “Then we needed lyrics and I asked myself the question – ‘What would Bon Scott do?’. That question is pretty much guaranteed NOT to set you on the wisest path. But you definitely know it’s going to be fun – at least in the short term. In this case it sent me back to my roots and I came up with this story to see what got Bon’s mate in so much trouble.”

Nightmare has been part of Göatzilla’s live set for a while along with “at least two albums worth” of new material the band has been working on since Covid put the music scene on hold. This was the first track they put together with the new lineup. According to the band “it’s just a good old-fashioned, no bullshit, in-ya-face Aussie-pub-rock track.”

Recorded by Guy Cooper at Serotonin Studios, the single and video of Nightmare are due for release on all the usual platforms on 4 June. Get the new single on Apple Music here, or on Spotify here.

Göatzilla has been described as “A feral version of AC/DC meets Motörhead, with twice the shredding”.Line-up:
Ben Zilla – Vocals & Bass
Pete “P1 Beardsley – Guitar
Pete “P2” Janssen – Guitar
Mick Davies – Drums

The group used the Owl of Minerva as their official symbol. The title and lyrical concept of this song is based on the roman goodness of wisdom ‘Minerva’ and the intertwined relationship it had with the Bavarian Illuminati.”

Rawtism: Strikes Again With New Video Stay Metal from their upcoming EP Raw Off Its Head

Today Rawtism release the new video Stay Metal from their upcoming EP Raw And Off Its Head which will be released independently on 12 June 2021.Prepare your Neck muscle and check out the amazing video from Australian New Thrash Attack Rawtism! STAY METAL!!!

The concept of Stay Metal came up when I went to a party in Eastern Victoria with some fellow metal musicians 10 years ago and one metal scene veteran got so drunk and ranted about younger musicians playing hardcore emo music. The lyrics are about the progression of a young musician heading towards the metal scene and being true to it. The song starts with a phased bass intro towards some heavy thrashy riffs and some chances for crowd anticipation to shout out the title. Says Keefy about the song.

Keefy about the video:
This video started with a wholesome scene featuring a little girl with a guitarplayed by the band’s bassist Naimo’s daughter Ebony. Then the song begins with live footage of the band playing on stage and sometimes off stage along with their crowd going crazy over it. It gives them an idea of what people should expect from a Rawtism show. It also features still photography shot by Micheal Gow of Alchemi Glow Photography. It ends with Ebony standing in front of the back of the band’s van with RAWTSM plates on.
This video is my first attempt at video editing due to a major setback with their cameraman Trevor Brown’s computer becoming too obsolete for his own editing software.


The soon to be released EP Raw And Off Its Head has been recorded at the homes of members Rorz’s and Naimo’s in Melbourne. Recording started in December 2019 and finished late 2020 due to delays during COVID restrictions. The EP was mastered by Andy Fernando of Singing Bird Studios in Frankston. The EP title Raw And Off Its Head lets the fans know what they are in for. A raw and accelerating experience so intense, you could go out of your mind. The cover art is the work of Daniel K Fraser and features a a grizzly scene depicting a long haired man screaming while his brain being savagely ripped out of his skull by a chrome skeletal hand from the inside of his head. It represents this intense feeling when you hear some fast paced, heavy thrash metal.
